James Shaw recovering after an unprovoked attack

The Green Party are supporting co-leader James Shaw and his whānau following an unprovoked attack this morning. 

James Shaw is currently under observation in hospital and is unlikely to be back at Parliament today. 

“I’ve been in touch with James this morning and he’s doing okay after this morning's unprovoked attack. We thank everyone for their outpouring of aroha and have been passing this onto him and his whānau” said Green Party Co-leader Marama Davidson.

“This morning's isolated and unprovoked attack has shaken us all. We highly value how open and accessible our politicians are in New Zealand and we don’t want to see this change."

"We've been overwhelmed with messages of support. Thank you all for the aroha people have been expressing today. I know that James, his whānau, our MPs, and staff all really value it."
